Yanagisawa S992 Soprano Saxophone, Bronze Body

The Yanagisawa S992 Soprano Saxophone has been a go-to instrument for professionals for some time now, and is ideal for advancing students too. The S99 series consists of elite instruments with mechanically superior design features and is a popular choice for many. The difference between this model and the S991 is the upgraded metal reflector, as opposed to the plastic version that the S991 has. Metal reflectors add clarity to the tone and improve playing response across the whole dynamic range. Yanagisawa’s S992 model comes with a straight and a curved neck piece which enables players to find their optimum playing angle and comfort. A single arm on the bell key provides a strong and reliable performance for years to come. This sax features an original hand engraved design by highly skilled craftsmen and comes with a leatherette covered, woodshell case and Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece.

Quality Mechanisms

Yanagisawa has redesigned many elements of the soprano saxophone to make it a better instrument for both advancing students and professionals. As standard octave key mechanisms can get sticky over time, Yanagisawa has used fluororesin, non-stick coating to ensure a reliable action with no stickiness for years to come. The C#, Bb & B keys have been adapted to feature a rocking table (see-saw) mechanism that enables optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches. Yanagisawa use blue steel springs as opposed to stainless steel as they are more efficient and hold tension more effectively, therefore enhance the key action. Yanagisawa saxophones feature special pointed pivot screws in the centre of all of the arms. These screws accurately control the stability of the centre arms and help to achieve a high precision action. This model features rib plate mounting - the keys are mounted to the rib plate before being mounted to the body of the instrument. The result of this process is improved resonance and tonal stability. Another important part of this saxophone is the underslung octave mechanism which produces a much quicker, more responsive action.

Premium Materials

Yanagisawa has developed the saxophone's materials in order to improve the sound of the instrument. This particular model features a stunning bronze body. A white shell lining has been added to the keys to make the saxophone more eye catching and to reduce the chance of the player's fingers slipping during a technical passage.

Lacquered Bronze Body

The S992 saxophone features a stunning bronze body that produces darker, richer tones than brass.

Hand Engraved & Ebonite Mouthpiece

For a luxury finish the Yanagisawa soprano saxophones feature an attractive and uniquely styled hand engraved pattern on the instrument's body. Also included is a Yanagisawa branded ebonite mouthpiece - a favourite among sax players. Popular because they produce lovely warm tones and are able to fit into an ensemble seamlessly.

Everything You Need

The S992 Yanagisawa soprano saxophone includes a premium leatherette covered hard case. The case stores the instrument safely so there is no need to worry about it getting damaged between rehearsals and concerts. Yanagisawa have also included a top quality ebonite mouthpiece and ligature so once you receive your parcel you will have everything that you need to play straight from the box. These trusted saxophones are individually play tested prior to being shipped - for absolute certainty of their quality.
